The first Mercedes was a racing car and now the new
Mercedes-AMG GT carries this legacy forward. The GT is the second sports car
developed entirely in-house by Mercedes-AMG. This was stated in a press release
from the company.
Its front mid-engine concept with transaxle and the
intelligent aluminium lightweight construction form the basis for a highly
dynamic driving experience. The car has an AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine. The
first sports car engine with internally mounted turbochargers ("hot inside
V") and dry sump lubrication is configured in two output ratings. As a GT
with 462 hp and as a GT S with 510 hp. The new GT combines driving dynamics and
first-class racetrack performance with superb everyday practicality and
The vehicle has top figures such as 3.8 seconds from zero to
100 km/h and a top speed of 310 km/h.
At the same time, the two-seater is a straightforward,
comfortable and reliable companion for everyday motoring thanks to its
practical tailgate, easily accessible luggage compartment, high level of
comfort on long journeys and the extensive range of Mercedes-Benz Intelligent
Drive assistance systems.
The combination of aluminium spaceframe, V8 biturbo engine
with dry sump lubrication, seven-speed dual clutch transmission in transaxle
configuration at the rear axle, locking differential, sports suspension with
aluminium double-wishbone suspension and the low kerb weight of 1540 kilograms
delivers racetrack performance. The concept with front mid-engine and
transmission in transaxle configuration makes for a beneficial weight
distribution of 47 to 53 percent between the front and rear axle. In
conjunction with the vehicle's low centre of gravity this translates into extremely
agile handling and permits high cornering speeds. With a favourable
power-to-weight ratio of 3.08 kilograms per hp, the Mercedes-AMG GT S
self-confidently lines up alongside the very best in its segment.
